Leo: Oimè, che veggio?

Cantata à voce sola di soprano
Forces: soprano & continuo

The pain of betrayal and the anguish it causes is the theme of the first part of this delightful cantata. The sobbing of the affettuoso aria is beautiful. The second half of the cantata, however, sees our young man in a fury! His long recit and final 'rage' aria (with its contrasting 3/2 middle section) are a piece of virtuosic writing of the first order.
